Following our visit to the excellent Nest we had high hopes for the Alimentarium, but were a little disappointed. If you don’t know anything about food production then I imagine you might get something out of this, but I did feel this was a bit...More

If you ever visit the lakefront of Vevey and couldn't decide where to get lunch, Alimentarium is definitely the place to have your lunch. The restaurant is organized as a training facility for all the chef-to-be. For less than CHF 20, you get to enjoy...More
